To be a good show, it doesn't always need to have a complicated plot and a deep cast of characters. This is exactly what Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer) proves. This show is another spectacle by its own not to be missed - the studio could take another generic shounen movie with a fairly linear story and turn it into a show that keeps fans hungry for more every week. . The studio has done just that with Kimetsu no Yaiba by making it one of the most popular shows of the year with its animation quality.
